Profile: https://share.firefox.dev/490blHh

Subject says it all, but it seems to occur with any site, anytime I try to open more than three or four tabs (ctrl-clicking links on a forum, for example) my Firefox instance grinds to a halt and starts consuming most of my CPU (Ryzen 5 3600).

I've tried turning off Firefox's various protections. I tried troubleshooting (formerly "safe") mode, and the problem isn't as bad but is still present as far as I can tell. The only extension I can think that would be making it worse is Tree Style Tab, but I don't know enough about interpreting Firefox profiles to verify.

The only reason I consider this odd is because doing the same thing in Chrome doesn't have this issue on this same device. If I open many tabs quickly, Chrome itself is still responsive. Those newly opened tabs may take a while to load and become interactive, but it doesn't affect the rest of the application. I pay my ISP for gigabit DSL, and as far as I can tell that is roughly what I get. In my case, Firefox doesn't behave this way.

A strange new requester appeared in Firefox today. I do not think that I clicked on anything without noticing. I was just watching a Youtube video and the requester appeared when I was moving the cursor down across the screen. The requester items would not respond, and the requester could not be closed. I had to quit Firefox and restart to get rid of it. See attached screen capture.

On eBay, on the orders page, near the top of the list is a checkbox which when checked should cause the entire list of orders to all become checked, allowing a single operation to apply to the entire list of checked orders. Checking this box is not causing the list of orders to become checked. It works in Firefox private mode.

The problem is not being caused by any of the extensions - it persists after disabling every extension.

Hi

My firefox suddenly stops working, it crashes on every tab I open.

I tried the troubleshoot mode (safe mode), tried refreshing firefox, tried uninstalling and reinstalling, tried cleaning the firefox folder and registry manually and then restart, ... everything that I could find on web, it just keeps crashing.

In "about:crashes" tab, it shows nothing, so I dont know what I can provide for diagnosis.

Please advise, thanks.

When I click on a Firefox menu (File, Edit, View, etc.) or the hamburger menu, or a drop-down menu on a web page, the menu appears. Then, when I move the mouse to hover over the menu, the menu vanishes. If, instead, I hold down the mouse button, I can move over the menu without it disappearing.

I'm using a focus-follows-mouse window manager (VTWM) and I think, somehow, Firefox is getting a focus change message when the mouse moves onto the menu. I think this because of the way the Firefox titlebar flickers from showing it's the active window to the inactive window, then active again, once the menu disappears.

Please advise.

Thanks, Richard

I have been running "Ancestry.com" on Firefox" for a number of years without any issues. The last few weeks if I open Ancestry to a window that shows a family tree the window freezes and I get a notice that says "This window is slowing down your browser" and it gives me a button with a "Stop" option. When I click the button the window unfreezes for one click and freezes again. This only happens in a "tree" window, the rest of the application works OK. I have done many of the troubleshooting steps, renew refresh, clear cache etc. with no improvement. I checked with "Ancestry" the recommend Firefox or Chrome. Trying Chrome there was no problem. My preference is Firefox as Chrome is to invasive.

I am running Windows 10 (up to date), an Asus Z87 Plus motherboard, an intel core i7-4770K cpu and a EVGA GTX 650 Ti Boost gpu with all drivers up to date. I have Firefox set as my default browser.

Please advise - Thank You John H ( jrhop@hvc.rr.com)

Hello,

Mozilla will not work - it looks like it's trying to load a page but nothing happens. Then the crash reporter kicks in - but it never actually sends the crash report. (I'll copy it here) I've tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it - it doesn't help. Tried disabling the antivirus and firewall (which had never been a problem before) but that doesn't help either. So if you can, please help :)

I frequently open new tabs by right-clicking the current tab and choosing "New Tab" from the context menu. Naturally, I want to start typing a URL or search term.

But the focus/cursor/caret is nowhere and typing does nothing. I have to click on the address bar, and then I can type.

I'm not using New Tab Override and I have Firefox's new tab set to a blank page.

I tried disabling all my add-ons, but I still had the problem.

I tried setting new tab to the Firefox home page and for a short while I got a cursor in the address bar. But the problem returned after a few hours

Any clues on what might be wrong? Firefox version 120.0.1 (64-bit) on MacOS Ventura 13.5.1. Thanks!

(A similar problem is described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1420220 -- but in my case this is not a container tab.)

Hi all,

I feel like this is a problem that must have been experienced and solved a thousand times... however I've tried all the suggested fixes I can find and the problem still persists.

When I load Firefox the pages take ages to load. It doesn't matter what the page is, it takes ages, except that about: pages load fine, no problem. When I say pages take ages to load, I mean that everything about the page takes ages, not only the next, not on the images and other content etc, everything. This only started happening today and I only created a new profile a month or so ago. I don't have many tabs open (maybe 20) of which 9 are pinned. I do have lots of extensions installed.

I've tried troubleshooting/safe mode, that makes no difference.

Private browsing and loading another profile are fine, they don't have this problem.

I've cleared all cache and data, cookies, etc, including startup cache.

I've deleted the content-prefs file, and removed places files.

I've tried disabling and enabling hardware acceleration.

I've tried disabling TRR.

Probably some other things too, but so far nothing has worked.

Suggestions please! :)

TO MOZILLA DEVELOPERS

In spite of hundreds if not thousands of users reporting this issue over and over again, and your suggested workaround to reduce memory usage in the settings that doesn't do anything - FIREFOX is still using unacceptably HUGE amount of memory.

With just FOUR (4) tabs open in one window, in the Task Manager I can see 17 (!!!!!!) Firefox windows open using 830 MB of memory. The highest usage of all my apps including memory hungry media apps. It's using THREE times as much memory as my Adobe Audition processing edits of a 1.5 hr audio with several clips.

This is insane!! You have gone crazy with caching to the point of making this browser unusable.

It's freezing up and crashing my Audition so before I work in it I must shut Firefox down completely - and I work on a powerful tower PC designed for media.

If you don't seriously cut back on this insane caching for the sake of browsing speed IN THE NEXT UPDATE, I won't be using your browser at all, it's simple as that. I'm already migrating my bookmarks and setting up Chrome which uses about half the memory that Firefox does with the same tabs, and I suspect that many users will follow suit.

The workarounds you offer DO NOT WORK. Any app that uses more than 500 MB of memory at any give time on my computer - goes.

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 6 (20XY005MGE) with Win11 Pro.

All of a sudden, Firefox does not play any sound. I notice that it does not show up in the volume mixer. I tried:

Youtube does not play sounds, the Spotify page notices that it cannot play sound (the spotify App for Windows works fine, though). News sites (tagesschau.de / video, deutschlandfunk.de / audio) play the video, but no sound.

I had the problem a few months ago already but I cannot recall the solution :(

Thanks for helpful hints!

If I go to Safelite and start scheduling an appointment, navigating through that set of webpages will cause my computer to green screen/crash. The landing page at https://safelite.com asks for a zip code, and submitting that form puts you into the scheduling flow; after entering some details about a vehicle, I can click back and continue a few times (less than ten) to make my computer crash. I was able to reproduce the issue in troubleshooting mode. I also tried the same steps in Chrome, but it did not produce a crash.

This computer has had an issue with crashing in this manner for a while now, but this is the first thing I've noticed consistently causes a crash. I'm not expecting a solution, but I am hoping to close in on the issue; whether or not Firefox is the source here is questionable, but it does seem highly entangled.

Hello,

I am using the Flatpak Version of Firefox on Manjaro Linux. I have hardware accelerated video playback on Youtube for VP9 but not for H.264 on YouTube and Twitch. I can verify that with intel_gpu_top. My hardware should be capable to do hardware decode. You can see in the provided screenshots, that it should work from the configuration standpoint. Do I missing something here or is this maybe a bug? I can provide any further information if needed.
